      A Big Difference in My Learning Process
      When I first came to the US I did not know English. I started in the intensive English programs on the level 1. In a year I graduated from the program and could be eligible to pursue my undergraduate at Southeast Missouri State University. Between the time that I was in the program, they offered several activities that helped me improve my English. The teachers and staff did not stay behind, they were amazing. They were fun and serious at the same time. I could make jokes and interact with them without hesitation. I felt comfortable in the class and that made a big difference in my learning process. Overall the program is excellent. It has the quality to be the best program in the university.
